    Application
    I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Warangal for Mu Sigma
    Interview Process
    Test Group Discussion HR Interview
    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    30 Minutes
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Aptitude test
    Interview Experience
    There was only one section in the aptitude test which involved critical reasoning. This was a very different kind of
    aptitude paper compared to all the other aptitude papers I attempted. 18 questions, where you had to interpret the
    information correctly. Questions varied from probability to data interpretation. Lot of questions which seemed easy
    at first but were concealed traps.
    Round 2

    Group Discussion

    Duration
    25 Minutes
    Group Discussion Topic
    Did swine flu become a pandemic?
    Interview Experience
    The discussion started off where most of the people tending to deviate from the topic which seemed to anger the
    panel members. I simply stuck to the topic and listed out the reasons why it created panic. I tried my best to keep
    it neutral towards the end when I concluded that it was inevitable for any such disease to be a pandemic and mostly
    stressed the role of the media in spreading panic, and at the same time playing an important role in suppressing it
    at a later stage.
    Round 3

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      It was mainly a stress interview. They ask you to introduce yourself and take them through your CV. They asked
      me what I understood of the company from the ppt. As I tried to explain to them what I understood of Mu sigma
      from the company they kept asking questions about my perception of the company and what was a a part in the
      company that made me think that this is the company i need a job in.They asked questions like goal in life, where I
      saw myself after 5 years from now. Being an engineering student they asked me why I did not pursue a career in
      software or look for a tech job. No matter what you answer they kept trying to cross question.I felt that the 20-25 minutes I sat with the panel was a test of how confidently I answered their questions. I tried to use whatever I had in my CV to impress them. No matter what I said, they always something to ask about it.

        General Tips
        I suggest that you try to explain to them why you are going for a business analyst profile properly because they wanted to only pick people they thought could explain this to them properly. If you think you didn't like engineering anymore and had more motivation towards a business profile, then just say it. I told this to them frankly and they simply smiled at my response. Set your priorities straight before you you enter the interview room. They looked mainly for confident people.

                  For the juniors, read the Job Description and the Profile of the company very carefully before you apply. Do ask your seniors about the work culture of the concerned companies and then decide whether you can take up the role that is on offer. Given the placement policy of the institute, one has limited options which he/she needs to carefully examine. As of preparations, you can prepare online mock aptitude tests for the written rounds. For the HR rounds, one can at best get in touch with the latest news. I wish you all the very best for your future endeavors.

                  Motivation for applying
                  The overall experience was average. I was down when Oracle Financial Services, a company that I was eyeing for, refused to include Industrial Design in its placement programme. However, the offer from Mu Sigma lifted some of my spirits.

                          Interview Tips
                          Listen to ppt carefully, keep your resume ready, prepare to answer questions about your resume, your interests (better have a deep idea of whatever you state as your interest),don't bluff(bluff as less as possible), speak clearly and communicate well, follow all basic manners and code of conduct.
